Because the seasons are changing in a positive way, I decided to write about life changes. Growing up, I was programmed to think that change is a bad thing. Throughout my life my mom always said that she hated change. Of course, this could have had a lot to do with her personal life experiences where change was not good. It could have also meant that my mom was happy in the present, and did not want anything to disrupt that state. I don't think she considered the possibility that change could make her current state even better.

I, on the other hand, have tried to think positively about change, even if I have to tell myself over and over again, "change can be good, change can be good, change can be good!" What I have learned is that change, both good and bad, is inevitable. Kids grow up, people grow old, our health changes, our jobs change, relationships change, and so on and so forth. 

While all of these changes aren't necessarily good, how we deal with the change can be good for us. We can either embrace it or fight it. At one of our recent Elite Travel Club events someone told me that there are a lot of new faces in our club. This is a good thing! We're growing, and therefore changing. As this continues to happen, please try to welcome others into the group by introducing yourself and saying hello. You never know who is on the receiving end of your kindness. It might just turn a stranger into a friend!

Thank you for your continued support. I appreciate all of you!
